Where is 2003 data?

I've had a few questions on this...

The source of the numbers is Yale Prof Robert Schiller, who has (so far) updated them at the end of each year for the previous year (i.e., 2003 results become available near the end of 2004). As of today, he has published final stock and bond numbers, but only estimated inflation numbers.

The detailed numbers on Firecalc output show the retirement year, and then the results each subsequent year. Since we don't have 2003 numbers there yet, there is no "next year" for someone retiring in 2002. That will show up as soon as I get and incorporate the new data. (And from a practical viewpoint, little will change when a new year is added, unless that new year is pretty abnormal compared to the existing years.

More when I see the updated data.

Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
